MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Elderflowers, citrus fruit and mango meld for an intensely fruity profile in an otherwise sadly muddled IPA (lots of floating yeast).

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the murky beige. This is beyond cloudy; there is no semblance of a nice colour in here at all.
-The fruitiness almost evokes rubber at times. Or is it durian?
-Bitter resins appear in the back as well.
-The soft prickling of carbonation makes for a streamlined body.
-This is not my favorite Kernel IPA by far, but it remains a nice hop fix when you are in the mood.

Bottled, 330ml from S.H Jones, Banbury, Oxon. Gold with white head. There is a bitter-sweet start to this, tangerines, cumquat type flavours, increasingly acidic but also with a grassy, hay-like aside. Good depth always interesting. Really very pleasant.
